A Tale of the Turks
All the Blues are captured here. Indigo Deep Water Blues. Seafoam Reef Blues. Translucent Shoreline Blues.
Nothing escapes the Blue. Even the underbellies of the jets flying overhead are bathed in Blue.
She fiddles with the lock of the screen door for the last time. Squinting, as sunlight makes diamonds on the Blue, she wiggles into her tail. Her feet fit snug in the monofin.
The water is enchanting. Refreshingly cool. One breath of muggy air and she’s under.
This world is muffled and salty.
The pod swims in fast. Grey bodies dip and bob in the surf.
She reaches for the dorsal fin of the leader. She is home.
Turks and Caicos.
Wishing We Could Go Back to these Magical Blues.
But Thankful that We are Staying Safe at Home. Hope you are too.
